Chinuch Hora'ah of the Day:
One of the most important things in the life of a person is his relationship with his children. It may even be said that a person’s true character is evident in his relationship with his children. Even in situations in which a person would suffice with the minimum if it were only for his own sake, when it comes to his children, his attitude is different. If he is befitting of the title adam, he wants only the best for his children and spares no efforts – to the point of self-sacrifice – to provide for his children, and not just the basic necessities, in both material and spiritual matters.
